Hi, I’m Carolina.

I am an freelance editor, writer, and reader with a love for literary fiction. If you’re looking for an editor for your book manuscript or just want to read book reviews and blog posts about editing, freelancing, and career-related topics, you’ve come to the right website.

I have edited and proofread books, creative writing journals, and literary magazines. I have experience editing a wide variety of business and marketing materials, including articles, blog posts, LinkedIn articles, social media posts, presentations, and more. I love working with authors on improving their writing, and I enjoy making manuscripts shine. If you’re an author, get in touch—I’d love to edit your writing.

I completed the University of Chicago’s editing certificate program in June 2019, which focused on book editing. I’m a member of ACES: The Society for Editing, Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA), Professional Editors Network (PEN), and St. Louis Publishers Association.

I write, apparently. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in So to Speak, Spider Mirror, Potpourri 2017, FIVE:2:ONE Magazine’s #thesideshow, Moonchild Magazine, Dream Pop Journal, and Déraciné Magazine. Read it, if you wish.

I also read—more than most people but less than I want to. I write book reviews and post about what I’m reading on Instagram at @carolinamariereads.
